IJMB – secure direct admission into 200 Level in various universities in Nigeria. The IJMB program in Nigeria has helped many students secure their ticket into the 200 Level in Various Universities without having to sit for the JAMB exam and at a considerably lower cost.
The Institution was established to provide qualitative and reliable educational assessment, encouraging academic and moral excellence and promoting sustainable human resource development.
Hundreds of Thousands of students apply and sit for UTME yearly but only about 20% are successful in securing admission into Nigeria universities. Most of these candidates, who fail to secure admission, reapply in subsequent years thereby worsening the admission burden in Nigerian Universities. Even for those who come off successful with over 200 scores in UTME, some of them end up not being able to secure admission. The worst dilemma is that they cannot use the result in the following year, as the UTME result is only valid for one (1) year, as against the IJMB result which has no expiry date.
This is particularly why the IJMB Advanced Level programme is a better recommendation. Other Advanced level programmes, apart from IJMB include NAGCE, CAMBRIDGE, among others.
The IJMB Advanced Level programme runs for a period of two semesters, after which a successful IJMB student graduates into 200 levels in the University through direct entry. All courses are available for the IJMB programme.
Candidates seeking admission into the IJMB programme must possess a minimum of 5 Credits in relevant O level subjects from WAEC, NECO or NABTEB in not more than two sittings. Awaiting results can also apply for the IJMB programme.
Lectures on the IJMB programme are guided by the approved IJMB syllabus and the contents of the IJMB syllabus cover the University 100 level syllabus and above, which must be taught within a period of two semesters.
The entire IJMB examination process is moderated by the IJMB headquarters, ABU, Zaria together with JAMB-approved moderators at the approved IJMB affiliated institutions.
More about the Interim Joint Matriculation Board (IJMB)
The Interim Joint Matriculation Board Examination (IJMBE) is a qualifying examination into Nigerian and Foreign Universities. The IJMB examination is primarily for Advanced Level subjects for Direct Entry into 200 level in the Universities.

The IJMB syllabus is designed to be covered in only one (1) academic session over a period of two (2) semesters. The content of the IJMB syllabus is structured in such a way to ensure that all the topics in the IJMB subjects are covered within the two semesters.

For effective coverage of the IJMB syllabus, a minimum of 8-10 lecture hours per week is recommended, IJMB practical and field works included. The IJMB syllabus may be revised every eight (8) years.
